We have been getting a lot of help form ms W. She has helped us from the very beginning with the business side of things like the money and that sort of thing. She has helped us a lot when it came to dealing with money and banks and deciding with the prices that we would need for our ads so that we will be able to get enough money to be able to print. We are very grateful for all the time she has spent helping us.
We have done a lot of work so far and there are still lots more to be done. But hopefully if we stay on track and keep going as good as we are right now we will be all set for the competition in March.
This project is different though. We have to make a tri-fold broacher on a tropical disease that is in one of the third world countries that we did for the last project. The broacher that we have to make will be highlight different things about the disease that we have chosen to do for the project. Ti will include things like the causes symptoms and affects that the diseases cause. We also have to write about how people can get the disease and where they can get it and things like that. For my broacher I am planning to do it on Tb in Madagascar.
This disease is found in rural parts of Madagascar and it affects the lungs and other important organs in the body. This project is really interesting and different and I’m looking forward to seeing the finished product in a few weeks.
To see more on our project go to:
While we were making our crosses ms KB was telling us about St Bridget and was telling us different stories about her. Some people were also singing a song about St Bridget that we learned in primary school. So it was a really fun class today.
I never thought that I would like it so much I thought that I would hate it and I love it. Like I don’t even know what I like about it so much it’s just great how you can like write down everything that you are doing ad that you have done and people can read it. Rather than just writing it down and you reading it. And i never forget anything that I do in school now because it goes into my blog. And yeah i might blog a bit much but sure why not.
This week we were told that it is almost time for us to make our subject choices .The third years will be doing their mocks, but before this happens they have to choose their subjects. We have been getting talks from different teachers about the subjects and what they invloved for leaving cert. Most of the teachers make the subjects sound great and interesting it’s like they are trying selling a product like on dragons den. It’s hard to know what they will really be like.
I think that I have finally decided that I want to do biology home ec and history the late course. I’m looking forward to going into fifth year but I am going to miss transition year. Every things just going too fast. It’s like ty is almost over all ready but I guess we just got to take one day a time and then it might not seem like it’s going too fat. But I love T.Y.
The only real problems that I had when I was doing my clock today were when it came to cutting out the circle part of it. I managed to make one side of it look like a circle and the other side look not like a circle. Mr W told me that it would look too bad and if I manage to get everything else right with it then it might look good after all. Well that’s what I’m hoping anyway.
Mini company is going well. Lots of work still to be done but it’s all going well so far. Hoping that it all keeps going well..... :)
In some classes we just got back our Christmas tests and we went through them and done some corrections and things like that. In other classes we kept doing work that we had started from before the Christmas holidays. In English we were working on our plays. The two classes went to the library to practice the plays for each other. But we didn’t have enough time to do all of the plays. But hopefully we will get a chance to show each other the plays before we go to perform them on the 25th of January..... Hopefully everything will go well and we will have everything all organised for the day.
In geography we went on looking at other peoples presentations. And again there were some really good and interesting ones. I found out lots of stuff that I didn’t know before that was really interesting and strange. Especially about the sheep in New Zealand.
In history we were given back our local history projects and we were told about our next project that we would be doing. We were given the titles and the headings for each part. The good things about this project are that it doesn’t have to be as long and we have a longer amount of time to do it on. We get to pick what we do our project on which is good because then we get to pick something that we are really interested in. I’m looking forward to starting it soon.
We were also told about all of the different things that we might be doing during the year. And well it seems like there has been a lot planned for us. On Friday we are going to the RDS for the BT Young Scientist competition. So that should be a good day and I am looking forward to it... :)
